Schools are expected to create their own curriculum.
Too off-putting, too demotivating, too dull.
New qualifications invited. These are now emerging... Pupils Research and supporting their studies A state-of-the-art IT suite ... is a nice thing to have. But compared with the contribution made by teachers, whose enthusiasm for their subject inspires and motivates the children they teach, they are nothing. Shut Down or Restart? The current delivery of Computing education in many UK schools is highly unsatisfactory. Although existing curricula for Information and Communication Technology (ICT) are broad and allow scope for teachers to inspire pupils and help them develop interests in Computing, many pupils are not inspired by what they are taught and gain nothing beyond basic digital literacy skills such as how to use a word-processor or a database.

Preparation for these programmes need to start before GCSE level I would like to understand the fundamentals of creating apps, computer programmes etc however also keep in touch with classic programming such as microsoft word, publisher etc. I think as a 13 year old I would want to learn about something that will help in my future years supporting my career of becoming a solicitor. I would like to learn about macromedia flash and how to make movies as well as adobe photoshop and also it would be amazing to have an up to date (school) website so I can say: oh, hi bob (random name) what is our ... homework? can you please send... I think that it would be a good idea to do things like computer programming making apps that would be useful to most people and also making games and at the same time learning the computer language and all of the programming behind them. game making for mobile devices ^_^ More specific skills like Powerpoint presentations, Photoshop etc.
How to do research. Importance of being ‘safe’ on the internet – I think that we as parents have the primary responsibility to teach this, but would be good to see more done in conjunction with school. The ICT curriculum should not be training children to be consumers, blindly feeling their way around programmes without any thought on how the programmes work or whether they are fit for purpose, just the end users of programmes.

We should have already integrated our ICT throughout the curriculum and found innovative and appropriate ways to use ICT in going about the business of teaching and learning. The curriculum should be... What are the ICT strengths in your school? Is your school ready to offer new schemes? What parts of the curriculum would you / have you ditched? 6 Pillars of ICT Be agnostic. In terms of pedagogy, let’s specify goals not routes. In terms of tech, let’s do operating systems not Macs, spreadsheets not Excel, and principles not implementations. In terms of society, let’s be accessible to as many as humanly possible.
Be focused on learning. It should be designed in such a way that the teacher can learn with the students. Tech moves very quickly and I see no shame in being the most experienced learner rather than the font of all knowledge.
Be challenging. There is a fear that children know more than adults. Fine. But don’t teach them what is difficult for you if it is easy for them. Don’t do Dreamweaver till you’ve done HTML. See previous point!
Be varied. Not just computer science, not just playing around with media, not just anything.
Be relevant, to children and to industry.
Be a work in progress. Because to be relevant you have to be.
